Lakeland Electric is sponsoring a Customer Appreciation Night at the Lakeland Magic Game on Friday, March 22 at 7pm.

In appreciation of Lakeland’s youngest citizens, Lakeland Electric wants to treat Lakeland KIDS to the opportunity to serve as an Anthem Buddy at the start of the game.

Anthem Buddies will welcome the players to the court, then stand with the players and coaches during the playing of the national anthem. After, they are escorted back to their seats to enjoy the game. This is a fun chance for kids to be on the court and feel like part of the game! Lakeland Mom will select approximately 30 kids to serve as Anthem Buddies on Friday, March 22.


  • You must be inside the arena at the RP Funding Center no later than 6:30pm. Meet in the Kids Zone where there are inflatables and games.
  • You must have tickets to the game – FREE TICKETS are available simply by bringing a Lakeland Electric bill to the RP Funding Center Box Office the day of the game. You can also claim up to 4 complimentary tickets online. If you are not a Lakeland Electric customer, you can purchase tickets to the game on the Lakeland Magic website or at the box office (starting at only $10 per ticket)
  • There are no age requirements, your child can go onto the court by themselves, with a sibling, or with an adult, but do realize it can be loud and exciting when the players enter the court
